Gary's review

An amazing two week holiday in September 2023. Jenny and Ken were the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them and their knowledge of the surrounding area very good. A very thoughtful welcome pack with essentials and yummy treats was awaiting us on arrival. The gite was very comfortable and clean with everything we needed.
